Important Submission Information

How to Participate

Speakers are limited to one talk, not counting the invited and prize lectures. There are no exceptions to this policy. However, speakers who wish to give an additional presentation may submit a poster on material different from that of the talk. All submissions are subject to review and final approval by the co-chairs.

You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.

Acceptance Notification

Authors will be notified by email in June 2021.

Speaker Cancellation

The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker in a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference.

If it becomes necessary for a speaker to cancel a presentation, he or she should try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. See SIAM Policy on Substitute Speakers and Remote Presentations. Contact SIAM at [email protected] immediately with any change to a scheduled presentation.

A “no-show” or cancelled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and conference organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance to this request.

Additional Information

Minisymposia

A minisymposium generally consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Minisymposium organizers can submit up to two (2) parts per minisymposium, allowing up to eight (8) speakers.

Prospective minisymposium organizers must submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 1,500 characters, including spaces), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations using the Conference Management System. SIAM requires minisymposium organizers propose sessions with a minimum of three (3) confirmed speakers by the minisymposium submission deadline. Sessions submitted with most speakers listed as “TBD/TBA,” or using placeholders, risk immediate rejection.

It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 1,500 character (including spaces) abstract. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions.

To ensure balance, SIAM prefers that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.

Be certain to visit Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal to review Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.

SIAM also requests speakers submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: January 13, 2021 DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 3, 2021
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: February 3, 2021 DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 17, 2021


Poster Minisymposia (Minisymposteria)

A minisymposium of posters (that is, a minisymposterium) consists of a collection of three or more posters by different presenters grouped around a central theme. The posters will be co-located in the poster viewing area.

Prospective organizers must submit a proposal consisting of a minisymposterium title, description (not to exceed 1,500 characters, including spaces), and a list of poster presenters and their titles using the Conference Management System. SIAM requires organizers propose Minisymposteria with a minimum of three (3) confirmed presenters by the minisymposium submission deadline. Sessions submitted with presenters listed as “TBD/TBA,” or using placeholders, risk immediate rejection.

Deadline for submission of minisymposterium poster abstracts: February 3, 2021 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)


Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format is generally a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions.

SIAM also requests speakers submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture.

A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 4’ x 8’ poster board. A poster session is two hours long. Each contributor, either for a lecture or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 1,500 characters, including spaces.

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System.

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts: February 3, 2021 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)
